How to disable anti-aliasing of fonts in Fluxbox?


I installed fluxbox on my slackware desktop.However,the display of fonts is ugly.I want to disable the anti-aliasing fonts in all GUI menu and webpages.How can I do that?I can easily change this in GNOME by using the menu of GNOME.But in fluxbox,it seems disappeared.

Please give me some suggestions if you know how to fix it.

You have to set that in the style now. Use this as an example:

*.font:Bitstream Vera Sans-10:antialias=false

to completely disable antialiasing, you can put


in your ~/.Xdefaults file.

karmaflux,thanks for your help.

It's successfully displaying "non-antialiasing" in the menu of Firefox and other GUI software.
